Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 InkJet Printer
You can actually initiate a document scanning via the "Scan" button on the printer or by
alternately, by launching the MP Navigator EX software from your PC. Pressing the "Scan" button
will launch the same software.
In MP Navigator EX, you can specify the type of original, change resolution, choose a format in which to save the scan (TIFF, JPEG, PDF, BMP), and edit the resulting scans. Within the custom scan tab, you can do advanced actions such as scanning originals larger than the platen using stitch assist and scan into a software program (such as Excel or Word). You can also attach scans to e-mails or save them to your PC.

Many issues are caused when the HP All-in-One is connected to the computer using a USB cable before the HP All-in-One software is installed on the computer. If you connected the HP All-in-One to your computer before the software installation screen prompts you to do so, you must follow these steps: Troubleshooting common setup issues 1. Disconnect the USB cable from the computer. 2. Uninstall the software (if you have already installed it). 3. Restart your computer. 4. Turn off the HP All-in-One, wait one minute, then restart it. 5. Reinstall the HP All-in-One software. CAUTION: Do not connect the USB cable to the computer until prompted by the software installation screen.

SOURCE: Can't scan
This sort of thing can be down to the fact the settings for communication to the printer is separate for printing/faxing/scanning. So you will need to find the scanning device (will usually be called HP3050 regardless, or something along the lines of that) and make sure it's set to communicate through USB and no other means.

You should have recieved software with the printer to do this, Look in the Hewlett-packard folder in the programs menu. It might be listed as HP Director. From there you should choose scan to as the option, one of the choices should be "to Fax".

The scanner uses different drivers, so that could still be an issue.
Please go to the canon support site for your printer here, search "scanning" and choose from the results the "error: cannon communicate with scanner." You'll see a series of links like the following, with detailed instructions to resolve this problem.
Issue: ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner...
1. Connect the USB cable directly to a USB port on the computer 2. Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to ensure a secure connection 3. Disconnect other device and reboot computer 4. Press the ON/OFF button to power on the multifunction device 5. Search for USBSCAN.SYS to install scan driver 6. Start the WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) Service or Stimon 7. Uninstalling / reinstalling the MP210 drivers (Windows)
